the scandal of the boston police department @and spying on activists as well as federalization of local law enforcement. we only have a brief amount of time, but maybe you could talk about those issues and how they relate to the big picture of what has been debated over power militarization of law enforcement, spying on dissidents in general. >> we published a report called the leasing -- policing defense, which has blown the lid off a scandal. the boston police department has been spying on the peaceful activity of antiwar groups and peace groups in the city of boston. this is a major story in boston and unfortunately did not make it to the level of the statewide political race as far as the warren brown contest was concern. that is unfortunate, and that has to change. we saw with the occupied movement, i like to refer to it lifting rocks that showed the unseemly side of what has been going on. you really saw police departments, advanced equipment deployed at largely peaceful protest groups. this problem is getting worse. they will continue to fund the police departments for their federali
